Ford Suspends Production at Multiple Assembly Plants

Ford Suspends Production at Multiple Assembly Plants

Oct 19, 2016

After halting production of the Ford Mustang, the American automaker is suspending production on several other models.

Despite being the best-selling vehicle in the U.S., production of the Ford F-150 will shut down for a week at the Kansas City assembly plant. Ford will also temporarily idle three other plants over the next several weeks, reports Reuters. Approximately 13,000 hourly workers will be laid off during the temporary shutdowns with about 4,000 workers in Mexico and 9,000 in the U.S. Sales of the Ford F-150 dropped nearly three percent in September, with dealers having a 95-day supply of pickups on lots at the end of last month. The company will continue producing F-150 pickups at its Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan.

Production of the Ford Escape and Lincoln MKC will also stop at the automaker’s Louisville Assembly Plant for two of the next three weeks, while two plants in Mexico will shut down, halting production of the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ. A third plant in Mexico will stop production of the Ford Fiesta.
